gnome-chord is a guitar chord index that displays a selected chord on a guitar fretboard.
It is released under the GPL which in short means that you can use and distribute it for free. It can be used as a stand alone application (for example you could use it to find how to play a specific chord or scale) or it can integrate with other applications to provide chord selection and rendering.
The simplest way to install this package is:
1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type `./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
Running `configure' takes awhile. While running, it prints some messages telling which features it is checking for.
2. Type `make' to compile the package.
3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with the package.
4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and documentation.
5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. There is also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly for the package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came with the distribution.

What's New in This Release:
- Now handles broken gconf setup better (which happens quite often if installing under /usr/local).
